STOMPer Chiam said:

"R.I.P Cory Monteith. They found him in his hotel room.

"He was engaged to Lea Michele (she played Rachel, also his girlfriend in the show) and they planned on having a kid after he left rehab.

"I really want to show my respects to his friends, family, and his fans.

"I was personally a huge fan of his and the second the news came to me I couldn't stop crying.

"He was very gifted and talented and it's a shame to see him go."
